Before we look at the playoffs, we need to keep track of the play in tournament first. During the play-in, Seed 7 will play against 8, and whoever wins becomes No. 7 Seed. Then, 9 will play against 10, and the winner will become the No. 8 seed.
The Milwaukee Bucks have a chance to get the No. 1 seed, with the Boston Celtics trailing behind by around three. They can win Seed 2, and will be facing whoever wins between the Heat and the Hawks. Next, you have the 76ers, who are behind the Celtics by just one loss, and they will be facing the Nets in the first round matchup. The Cavaliers are projected to get the No.4 Seed, if they can fend the Knicks off. The Knicks are at No.5, while the Nets are at 6th.
For the play-in, Miami Heat is at 7, and will be playing against the Atlanta Hawks. Meanwhile, the Wizards are 9, and Raptors sit at 10.

As for the Western Conference, you have the Nuggets who may get the No. 1 seed, and its their spot to lose as they lead against No. 3 Kings by around 5 games. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies may score the No. 2 seed if they beat the Kings. You have the Phoenix Suns at 4, and will Face No.5 Clippers in the first round matchup. The Mavs are projected to push through, but it’s a tie between them, the Clippers, and the Warriors.
